Walkie Talkies: 

         Get a GMRS set.  Cost around $35.
         Best if it uses AA batteries as they will be more easily rechargeable,
           but not required.

         Best if you get earphones, but not required.

         Jim's Recommendation:   

                       One pair only  - $34

                       One pair with earphones  $54

                 Be sure to get some extra rechargeable batteries.
